Roofing Barrington

The most important part of any home or business in Barrington is the roof.  When the roof is cracked, damaged, or broken, water and other things can get into the roof and really damage your home or business.  Dickson Contractors have been the roofing experts in Barrington for the last 30 years! We know roofing and we know how to make sure your roof is protecting your home, family, or business in the area from the weather in Barrington.  You can delve deeper into roofing from the article below however to give you a brief overview of what to look for on your roof to give you signs that it might need to be repaired or replaced:

  1. Age: If your roof is at least 18 years old then you should call a professional roofing service to inspect your roof immediately.  After 18 years roofs start to break down and lose its ability to hold their integrity.
  2. Bald Spots: If your roof has several bald spots, where there are missing shingles you should definitely consider getting a professional roofing service to come out and inspect your roof.

Windows Barrington

Dickson Contractors has been serving Barrington with the best window services for over 30 years!  However, one of the problems we always see is cracked windows that have gone on too long and cannot be saved.  If you have a crack in your window there are several reasons to get repaired or replaced as soon as you can:

  • Water – Even if the seal around your window is not the best, water still runs down to the base of your window where it is designed to handle it. Cracks mean that there is another way for water to go, and that way can lead it to where the window was not designed to handle water.
  • Loss of Insulation – When a window cracks air can get through easily. This means that cold or hot air can pass through the crack making the room the window is colder in the winter and warmer in the summer.
  • Dirt – Pollen, dirt and other particles floating in the air outside are often small enough to make it through a crack in your window. This means a lot more cleaning on your part, and dealing with allergies as well.
  • Insects – Windows keep more than the elements out. Insects have a bad habit of finding small holes to get into your home, and a crack in your window can be a great way for small insects like ants, spiders, and others inside.

Siding Barrington

Dickson Contractors has been serving Barrington with the best siding service for over 30 years!  We are the experts in siding repair, replacement, and installation.  One of the most important things we can tell you about siding is that you should never rip the siding off the home when it is coming off.  Doing this can actually damage the siding more. One of the best things though is vinyl siding.  You can learn more about siding below but here are some benefits to vinyl siding for your home:

  1. Vinyl siding is very durable, it can withstand high winds and resist heat, moisture, and cold. Never changing its appearance, even after a strong storm.
  2. Vinyl Siding is cheaper to own, install, and maintain over time.
  3. Vinyl siding is very diverse when it comes to your choices. Vinyl siding comes in many different colors or textures that best suit the feel of your home. Vinyl can mimic the look of stone, wood, and slate. Homeowners do not have to compromise on beauty when it comes to vinyl siding.
  4. Vinyl siding does not need to be overly maintained. You never need to repaint and it can be cleaned off with water and a mild soap once a year. It will not crack or rot.  
  5. Wood requires upkeep not only with pain to make sure that there are no holes or cracks which will only increase over time.

Exterior Doors Barrington

Choosing the best exterior door for your home or business comes down two things, style and durability.  We have been installing and replacing exterior doors in Barrington for the last 30 years!  We have the knowledge and experience you can rely on when it comes to choosing the right door for your home. One of the first things you want to consider is the aesthetics of the door.  For a front door, you probably want to consider a giant wood door or something that is inviting to your home.  You can choose to have glass on the door with windows or the different framing options for the door as well.  You also want to consider the leaks that might come from the door as well.  Nothing is worse than having your heat running trying to heat a home during the winters in Barrington when your door is leaking fighting against the temperature. When it comes to choosing an exterior door for the back of your home or a garage entrance a steel door is the best option.  It provides you safety and security and gives you protection from the elements during the seasons.

One of the reasons why choosing the right door is because your home’s sale time might increase because of the look of the home.  With the right door on the front, your curb appeal is increased. Realtor studies have shown that having an attractive and welcoming looking in front of the house will always increase sale time and price.  Therefore, choosing the right door for your home in Barrington is important. Dickson Contractors is the best in the area when it comes to putting on the right door for your home. Come choose a door in our showroom today or call us so we can take a look!  Learn more about doors below including choosing style tips and more!

Gutters Barrington

Gutters are important to any home!  Gutters help protect your home from flooding and water damage that can occur during a storm.  We also know living in Barrington, that water can get frozen and ruin the gutter during the winter time. However, fixing and replacing gutters are a snap when there is an expert doing the job.  That is why homes and businesses have been relying on Dickson Contractors to work on their gutters for the past 30 years!

Many people don’t think about why their gutters are important, they are just always there.  Gutters are all about preventing damage to your home from rain and melting snow.  Here are a couple of reasons why your gutters should be working properly and are well maintained:

  • Gutters prevent paint damage and siding damage to the side of your home.  This also prevents rust and other problems from forming because they move water away from the home.
  • Gutters prevent basement flooding
  • Gutters prevent landscape damage and pooling water just outside the home.  This also leads to fewer insects near your home as well.
  • Gutters prevent your foundation from becoming cracked or damaged
  • Gutters prevent mold damage and other damage to your home walls as well

You can read more about gutters below including the right kind for your home and the best way to install them to move water away from your home.  If you think your home might need gutter repair or replacement contact Dickson Contractors today and let us help!
